Can I get certified to sail a catamaran?
Yes, we offer week-long, 6-day, on-board cruising catamaran courses. Learn to sail and get hands-on experience with our three course options:
Option 1: ASA 101 Keelboat Sailing, 103 Coastal Cruising, 104 Bareboat Cruising, and 114 Catamaran Cruising Certification.
Option 2: ASA 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising, 114 Catamaran Cruising, and 118 Docking Endorsement.
Option 3: Private Customized ASA 101, 103, 104, 106, 114, and 118 (any three) certification course.
What if I do not have ASA 101 or any sailing experience? Can I still take Option 1: ASA 101, 103, 104, and 114?
Yes! We offer ASA 101 as part of our Option 1 course. You can prepare yourself by studying at home with online courses and step right into ASA 103.
Can I bareboat in other countries after I get ASA certified?
Yes. An International Proficiency Certificate (IPC) is included in your course for FREE. The IPC will qualify you to bareboat charter in several European countries (Belarus, Croatia, France, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey).
Can I bareboat charter after I complete the ASA course?
Yes, most of our graduates are ready to bareboat charter a 40 to 50-ft catamaran.
How flexible are the courses?
Welcome to a unique kind of sailing school designed with you, the student, in mind. Classes are customized for each student on board. You are welcome to complete as much or as little coursework as you desire. If there are members in your party who just want to ride along that is totally acceptable. We want your courses and your experience to be exceptional and fun.
What airport should I fly into?
Fly in and out of St. Thomas (STT)—Cyril E. King International Airport St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Most people arrive on Sunday and sleep aboard the Catamaran (course begins 10 AM on Monday). Most people leave on Saturday (course ends 10 AM on Saturday).
We choose to partner with American Sailing Association,
the best affiliation for cruising.
